Comments

We are doing all the work ourselves (volunteers and I). There is no vendor or company about whom to answer some of these questions. (We are still in the process of migrating to KOHA. Since our server failure was catastrophic we have had to rebuild the system from the ground up using mostly volunteer labor. I think we will be very happy with KOHA, once we have actually started using it. (Type: Public)

Please note we operate a do-it-yourself LMS (Type: School)

We are currently using an outdated open source Koha. I plan to be fully migrated to Koha 3.14 or better by Fall 2014. (Type: Academic)

en realidad estamos evaluando vufind para integrar el catalogo de biblioteca en koha con el de archivo en icaatom (Type: Special)

In-house installation -- no vendors employed (Type: Special)

It would be nice to have additional answers to choose from that specifically address the open source options, for example we address or support questions to the Koha Community wiki and list serv. (Type: Public)

I have an IT department, two people, that dialogue with koha on problems. (Type: School)

Recientemente hemos migrado nuestro SGIB. Pasamos de un servicio enlatado a uno de código abierto, KOHA. contratamos una empresa que se encargó de la instalación, personalización y migración del sistema, y con la cual hemos tenido una experiencia muy buena. (Type: Academic)

Difficult to answer some of these questions because we setup the ILS in-house without support from outside vendors or contract help. (Type: Special)

Questions in this survey are mostly inappropriate for our situation. We don't have a contract with any vendor, instead we have two systems librarians taking care of our Koha library system. We cooperate with Koha community. Question about interest in open source ILS option is also inappropriate because we already use one. (Type: Academic)

Usamos Koha 3.4 y actualmente estamos considerando seriamente en actualizar a la versión mas reciente 3.14 (Type: Academic)

Koha's "customer support" is user chat rooms. When we had an IT director who was enthusiastic about working with open source, Koha worked well for us. Our new director is not, and it is not working well. Other librarians in the district might rate Koha zero all the way down. (Type: School)

I migrated to Koha by downloading the software and tinkering with it until I got it right, so we didn't really use a company--just the Koha IRC channel and discussion list. Although I've been using computers for years, I have little experience in Ubuntu. Nevertheless, I was able to set up the entire system on my own in a very short time. Koha is amazingly easy to use, infinitely configurable, and open source. Some modules need improvement, but the Koha community is far more open and responsive to requests than any proprietary system I have used. Long live Koha!! (Type: Medical)

We have no electronic resources. There is no contract or schedule for open source software. (Type: Independent Research)

This library implemented KOHA inhouse i.e. not using a support company. With the growing use of Open Source ILS provision should be made in this survey for those implementing such systems with an external company. (Type: Special)

The library has just installed Koha independently, using only its IT contractor and the librarian to carry out the install and data migration and the system is not yet live (anticipated go-live date is mid-February 2014). It is however a huge step up from the library's previous ILS, Bookmark, and thus far is proving to be completely satisfactory. The responses may be different next year after nearly a full academic year of operation. (Type: Art)

Using Koha 3.14. Very happy! (Type: School)

We are not taking any support from an company, but managing the ILS by ourselves. (Type: Academic)

Consortium implemented Koha with a separate database per library in the group. (Type: Consortium)

Some of these questions are not relevant to our system. Ex: there is no contract. KOHA is a free catalog operating system. We have not contacted customer support since first installed a decade ago. (Type: Public)
